What is The Healthiest Wine to Drink?
"Will. Hey everybody one of the most common questions that i get is what kind of alcoholic drinks will kind of wine. Can i drink. When i'm doing a low carb kito genyk diet and of course as a doctor. I recommend drinking a lot of alcohol. Obviously alcohol can have a lot of health problems however what. I was surprised to find out years ago. Is that wine. Actually if it's done properly if it's cultivated rights and fermented properly can actually be extremely healthy and this is great news. I means that we can drink in moderation and actually improve our health and so the wine that i drink. I'm gonna go over in this podcast. And i'm gonna show you why i drink this wine and so i think we've got to realize is that there are many health benefits actually drinking wine. These are well researched benefits lot of science out there about how it improves. Your triglycerides lipid levels. It reduces your risk of dementia reduces insulin resistance would actually can help improve blood sugar stability and insulin sensitivity which also get stress off of our blood vessels and allows us to have better circulation house. Control blood sugar which reduces our risk of heart disease cancer so a lot of good research. That's out there now. This drinking in moderation is not you know drinking a bottle of wine every day. This might be drinking like one small glass a day or Few times a week. Personally i drink wine probably once maybe at most twice a week Like maybe two glasses a week. Max and i do that we My family we celebrate a sabbath usually friday night which is really when jesus celebrated the sabbath and we'll oftentimes have wine will blessed and and drink it and we drink a certain type of wine that does not impact my blood sugar. That does not have additives and preservatives. And things like that. And i feel great drinking it. There's no hangover. There's i just feel really really good drinking it. And actually i've seen on. My continuous blood glucose monitor that actually helps control and stabilize my blood sugar levels as well. Now there's a couple of great benefits with wine great nutrients i should say one is resveratrol which is a poly phenolic bioflavonoids antioxidant. That's produced certain plants and founded foods drinks in particular. It's found in red wine right. It's called the french paradox. right and france. They drink a lot of red wine and people tend to live longer and one of the reasons is because of this compound resveratrol and that's really what got scientists to study at. They said there's gotta be something going on here and so they looked at the different compounds in red wine and they found reservoir trawl and they found that it has a great impact at improving. Might conjul health house reduce oxidative stress throughout the body to support the immune system our brain scan Keeps inflammation under control imprisoned circulation. So a lot of great benefits to it and that we find wine. We also have anthocyanins so dan in believe it. Spanish means blue right and So basically it's kind of a blue pigment or purplish pigment. And we find it in things like blueberries red onions grapes purple broccoli and cauliflower red cabbage cherries right these things. That have the kind of purplish war. Bluish sort of color to red onions. Other another example of it and so anthocyanins help protect against oxidative stress coming from radiation from the
The New Science of Why We Get Cancer with Dr. Jason Fung
"Dr fong welcome to the broken brain. Podcast thanks for having me here. I'm really excited. Many of our listeners. Know that my my family like a lot of families out there has been touched by cancer. Mom few years ago about ten years ago was diagnosed with breast cancer had aunts that have been also diagnosed with breast cancer and my grandfather passed away of cancer bone cancer. That was there so. I think i'm representative of a lot of people who have been through this journey supporting family members and are just curious not only for their own health and their families south but curious about what is this thing and i want to first start off by saying you know your books and the way that you approach writing. I really appreciate because you're taking a premise and idea that people seem to hold a true. And you're bringing new contrarian thinking we used to think of fasting as being this restrictive thing potentially dangerous and you highlighted the research around that field. That helped us understood. That fasting is actually central to healing inside of our body with things like diabetes and other diseases. And you're doing it again with cancer by questioning the basic premise. And i want to pull a quote from your book to start off the conversation. Which is you say and you start off in the book you say the most pressing question cancer. Research is the most lucid question. What is cancer. So can we start off there because it's still a question that we're asking today. Which is what exactly is cancer. Yeah that's sort of the most important thing is understan- disease you really have to understand what it is like a causes et what the disease is lily for the of the common Diseases cancer stands virtually alone because we had no idea what this disease actually so you look at other diseases like cove it or you know infections. We've identified viruses. We've identified bacteria. We've figured out fungi. And so these are external invaders for heart disease and stuff. These are you know. Blockages in our blood vessels which starved the heart. Or the brain of blood to get heart attacks or strokes so we sort of understand what the disease how it develops in that kind of thing But for cancer sort of a very very strange disease. So it's it's unlike any other disease we've ever face is not a faster. Disease like heart disease is not an external invasion like bacteria or viruses You know it's not a you know stones and stuff. There's all these other diseases. But what is this strange disease and it's not that it's one of these sort of rare. It's unfortunately extremely comments. Lifetime risk of cancer is somewhere around one ten. And it's gonna you know affect everybody's life in that if you don't get it you will know people who will get it almost. Everybody does but we don't know what this is. This is the whole sort of discussion in the book is. What is this disease. Because it's a disease where the you have a normal sal which is part of your own body as it's derived from your own body and for some reason this normal cell he breaks off and becomes cancerous to the point where it can kill you and it kills of course many many fullest the second killer of people so our concept of what this disease actually is has been changing so you know it's changed throughout history really even in the last ten years. There's been this massive change in the way that we look at disease in this what. I call the paradigms of cancer that is you know not arguing about. Oh this you know this is how to treat cancer like we've done lots of studies on you know. Use this drug. The of these drugs in combination with surgery. Chemotherapy and radiation. You put him in this sort of you can treat cancer. I'm not disputing any of that. But in the end it doesn't help the answer. The question of what is if you want understand what it is then you have to start a starts from beginning. Go through it on say. What is this disease. That's where we really made a bata progress within the last sort of fifteen twenty years and most people haven't even really appreciate that. And that's what i wanted to bring forward. Is that sort of recent research and bring it to the people so they at least understand what this disease is. That data is affecting so many people
How the gut protects the brain from infection
"A brains sit cocooned inside a series of protective layers. They called them in injuries. And these together with a structure called the blood brain barrier keep out unwanted bugs nasties that could otherwise prove lethal forest. But how exactly the brains defense systems do. This wasn't known now. A new discovery is added an important piece to the puzzle specialized plasma cells these a blood cells that make antibodies is important potentially harmful bacteria in our intestines and then make their way up to the outer part of them in indies called the juror where they churn out antibodies and keep the brain bug free medical worthy. The thing that really got me interested in thinking about the brain is that there's increasing evidence that the immune system plays a role in a number of brain disorders so things like depression and anxiety and even the progression of neurodegenerative diseases like parkinson's disease as well as that. We know that the immune system is required to defend parts of the body from infection. So this could be important for defense against infections in the brain and in the ninja. So things like meningitis. How did you them. Pursue this to try and work out. How the brain was actually fending off infections. As with many studies in immunology we use mousers as a model and so the first thing that we did was to take meninges and look at them under the microscope and they were plasma cells in the sierra and they were not just got anywhere. They are actually lined up along. The border of large blood vessels that run through the zero. The these bug vessels are called venus. Sinuses the next question. When we find these plasma cells was empty they were producing to all surprise. We found that rather than producing igt. What's normally find in the body. They were actually producing an antibody. That's normally found gut so you've got this interesting observation an- tomic clear in the first instance of blood vessels running through. Jeez they've got cells that make antibody lining up along them. But the antibody they're making is one that you would not normally associate with the bloodstream. It's one that you would find in the testing. Yes so that was surprising. And i guess the next question was well duty cells actually originating the guts or are they influenced by the gut so to answer that we were able to use. Mice have never seen any sort of bug. They have no bacteria or any microbes in their intestine and when we looked at the dura from these animals they were no cells whatsoever but when we added bacteria back into their gut suddenly again the antibody producing cells reappeared in the era and even if we only eat put one type of bacteria into these mice a type of bacteria that couldn't go anywhere other than the gut we still saw the cells reappear in in the dearest that told us that those cells originated in the intestine. Your sort of hypothesis is the bacteria in the intestine. They educate the immune system and immune cells the intestine and what the cells then migrate from the intesting with the knowledge of how to make antibodies against those specific microbes. Up to the brain and take up residence in the meninges around the brain exactly and they specifically take up residence at the border of these d'oro venus sinuses. And i guess then the obvious question will why. Why would that happen. Why is the system being set up and the obvious answer would be. Maybe those cells there to protect The brain from microbes bacteria that originated in the gut into the bloodstream. When they're flowing through those at venus sinuses where blood flow is quite slow. It's an opportunity for the bugs to get out into the brain so to test that what we did was to remove all of the antibody producing cells and then we challenged mice with microbes into their bloodstream. And what we found was the bugs were able to get a cross into the brain as so it told us that really. We found a whole new defense system for the brain. What are you going to do next. We're interested in the signals. That might take the plasma cells from the gut to them. And jeez and then the other thing. I'm really interested in is whether this has implications for how we try and protect people from meningitis at the moment. If we vaccinated against meningitis we give that vaccine into the muscle but our study would suggest that actually if you want to make cells to defend the brain the route that you should give that vaccine is actually via the gut and so that's something that we look into the bodies a clever all thing. Isn't it minute klatt worthy there. She's basically comes university. Study describing that work has just come out in the journal nature.
The Gluten Connection to Osteoporosis and Autoimmune Diseases
"I'm Cassie Wenas. I've been a registered and licensed stay Titian for twenty two years and of those twenty two years I've been teaching nutrition classes and Co hosting this dishing up nutrition program for about the past fourteen to fifteen years. I am telling you this certainly not to make myself feel old. But to let you know that I have quite a bit of experience to share and I feel really fortunate to be able to be here this morning to help all of you listening better understand the connection between what you eat and how you feel. And today my co host Teresa and I will be discussing subject that I know a lot about and if we're being honest I know a lot about this topic more by destiny certainly not by choice we're going to be talking about the myriad of health problems that gluten grains cause for a lot of people as many of our listeners know I know a lot about this topic not only because of how gluten has negatively affected my health but what? Really drives, my passion on this topic stems from the fact that both of my kids have a condition called seal EAC and if you're not familiar with this autoimmune condition in a nutshell, it's when your body has a severe reaction to gluten and actually causes your body to begin attacking itself. It's kind of like the immune system goes haywire, and if you swallow even just a tiny speck of gluten, your immune system I begins attacking your own small intestine. So. Now you know a little bit about our topic for the day next, I'd like to ask a few questions just to get everybody connecting the dots as we delve further into what we call the dark side of gluten. So question number one, do you or a close family member have lupus. Do you or a close family member have rheumatoid arthritis or do you have a thyroid condition like? Disease or Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Do you have Raynaud's if you're not familiar with rain odds, I can explain from personal experience. Raynaud's is when the blood vessels in your hands and your feet. Constrict when you get cold and they constrict beyond what's Normal When the weather or the air is cold or it can happen because of stress as well, and then your fingers or your toes might turn white and you get sort of a burning pain not fun. Or is your Autoimmune Disease Scleroderma or type one diabetes. Do you or a loved one have chronic acid reflux or do you have osteoporosis if you can say, yes to any of these questions you're in for a super informative show today theresa and I WanNa help you make the connection between eating gluten grains namely the the Ri- The barley and most oats and your health problems. And as I just mentioned, my co host today is Theresa. I WanNa tell you a little bit more about her Theresa Wagner like me is a registered and licensed AIA Titian she to teaches many of our nutrition classes she of course, Co host this radio program. She's a mom of young kids and she counsels clients several days a week either by zoom or phone appointments because of Covid, nineteen were offering all of our nutritional counseling either by video or phone appointments. Yes. That's right and we are staying busy with those phone appointments and zoom appointments but as it relates to our topic today, cassie. Mentioned earlier that your kids CEAC. Disease. It made me think were you shocked at the many hidden sources of gluten when you started? Living a gluten free life all those years ago I really was shocked I had been a Dietitian for many years at that point by the time our family got diagnosed. So I knew gluten was inbred. I. Knew it was in anything made with wheat flour but I had no idea of the more hidden sources of gluten in our American food supply just to give you a couple. Of examples. Gluten is in some brands of Deli meat. It's in a lot of summer sausage and beef stick brands. It's in some ice creams for heaven's sakes and even in some medicines, not only that but when you have, CEAC, you have to be careful about personal care items to you need to be sure you're buying gluten free shampoo gluten free toothpaste, gluten-free Lotion, and gluten-free makeup. Yeah. It's so crazy to me that gluten is an ingredient in so many every day nonfood products. It reminds me of a client who had ongoing migraine headaches. We have limit. You know we had gone through elimination where we Eliminated. The dietary sources of what we thought causing the Migraines and we went through lifestyle habits that we thought could possibly be causing the migraines when we finally looked at her personal care products and switched to a shampoo without added gluten. Her migraines they disappeared.
Dr. Giselle Petzinger on Exercise for Parkinson's Disease
"Hello everyone I'm sitting here with Dr Sell pet singer who is a clinical psychologist who specializes in Parkinson's disease she is at the University of Southern California, where she splits her time between clinical care and research one of the reasons I reached out to just sal is because I'm particularly interested in some of her research on the role of exercise and Parkinson's disease. Excellent. So Can you talk a little bit about? What Parkinson's diseases maybe just from from a basic standpoint. Absolutely. So Parkinson's disease is a progressive degenerative disorder. It's a disorder that affects individuals that are over the age of fifty generally speaking. So we consider it a disorder of aging. and. Generally speaking, we think of Parkinson's disease as a problem with mobility. In fact, clinically that's how we tend to recognize it and most people when they're trying to are feeling that something's changed its often because of mobility problems and what I mean by that is slowness people will describe feeling slow dragging a leg. And or stiffness. So it has a kind of a set kind of motor movement big strong moving component. then. Of course there's tremor I think one thing though that people in general don't realize trimmer isn't necessary. So tremor definitely brings people into see neurologist and and certainly can be Parkinson's tremor can have other causes besides Parkinson. So generally speaking, it's really more I'd say about the slowness and the stiffness and it can affect any part of the body meaning it can affect lakes and therefore costs. So walking an example, but it can also affect the hands in arms where people can actually feel that they can't use arms well, they feel that things are taking longer to do. And sometimes, that might even be associated with some pain element of pain. So as I mentioned, Parkinson's is as sort of recognized as a motive problem. What we're realizing recognizing more over time is that there's what we call it non motor issue meaning on motor related phenomenon that occur and some of these non motor phenomena can occur even before the motor and people don't connect it necessarily with Parkinson's examples of that may be loss of smell. Now again, some of these other features are not specific. So none of these are specific. Kind of evaluating everything together. But the non motor features as I said could be the smell teaches and smell. Other non motor. So that means things that aren't affecting mobility. Could be mood, for example, society depression back we're now realizing recognizing these number papers that have come out you know years ago that excited pressure may be predate motor symptoms, two years, and then exactly depression me manifest in functional things like not be able to drive in a car in the on the highway feeling really anxious about that. Any family members may comment that the person just seems a little bit more depressed. So those things are now really well appreciated and recognized other things that are nominated that again, me precede motor features or even what we call the autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system is part of the nervous system that involves or innovate smooth muscles. So this is things like your gut. Your heart. Your sweat. Glands. And those smooth muscles are part of your your gut in your blood vessels when they're not acting normally or behaving normally, it can cause disruption in your gut like constipation. So constipation again, in retrospect we find people may have problems with constipation even before they describe a note problems with movement of blood pressure changes in blood pressure may be dropping him blood pressure or heart rate abnormalities because of. Changes in the innovation to the heart. These are all kind of examples of nominal that aren't necessarily specific to Parkinson's disease but kind of come to once we see the motor features we can say, Oh yeah before that, there were these other sorts non motor features that were really predating it. So the point is, is that Parkinson's certainly more than that and We're appreciating that more and it finally. I would say now really coming on the forefront again, even more is a cognitive issue of Parkinson's and I think what we're recognizing again, cognitive issues a pretty predominant in Parkinson's literature sort of all over the place but essentially, the reporting about forty percent even upon diagnosis may already have some cognitive issues. Now, that's not the same thing as dementia. So this is called mild cognitive impairment in cognitive impairment is defined by the idea that a person may be noticing memory related issue or their family members noting that but they're not functioning paired meaning. They can do all the Adl's but they themselves were noting this and we can actually pick that up on some diagnostic testing as well So these things again haven't quite there's some understanding of why this may be happening but they're certainly part of park disease. And also the idea that they are very much interrelated. So. Motor and cognition probably had some relationship to in terms of the idea that cognitive issues can sometimes contribute to more motor problems or cognitive issues can get you more mood related issues. So they're they're not really separated. They're very much interrelated and we'll begin understand how and why that may be happening either from a chemical point of view from circuit point of view

Why COVID-19 poses a special risk during pregnancy
"As it seems kind of to always the case these days there are a lot of open questions about corona virus and something else. In this case it's pregnant women like are these women at greater risk for more severe infections can the virus infected fetus? How likely is transmission at birth from an infected mother Maribeth? I know you don't have answers to all these questions but let's start with what are some solid trends at this point. For example are pregnant women more at risk if they're infected, it seems to be the case that they are although the data is very incomplete given though what the consequences are from a severe infection, it's really better to err on the side of caution and assume that. Yes, they are at increased risk and that wouldn't be totally surprising because it's known from our understanding of other respiratory viruses that women can get much more severe infections and have worse outcomes. That's particularly well established for influenza and it's thought to be the case for SARS Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. That's caused by a similar virus. That's a close cousin of the new corona virus. There are a couple of biological factors that point to why this might be the case particularly how the immune system changes during pregnancy. How might that contribute to more severe infections? The immune system in pregnancy is like a moving target it's constantly adjusting HASTA. Hit this tricky balance of still repelling foreign invaders but not rejecting the fetus, which after all half of the fetus is not from mom and might look foreign to the immune system and what can happen is that things get outta whack perhaps there are worse infections than might have otherwise been the case. At the same time we know that the new corona virus causes really severe inflammation in particularly serious cases of infection. And if the mother's immune system is also active as it is in pregnancy, it's possible. Some experts think that this. Piles on with additional inflammation and that you get a worse situation than you would have had had mom not been pregnant. So it's not well understood but it's thought that there can be unhealthy interplay pregnancy also puts stress on the long Lewis and the cardiovascular system these are both too targets of Kobe eighteen. How is the body affected by pregnancy in such a way that the lungs cardiovascular system are harmed and how does Cova nineteen effect the lungs cardiovascular system sure. Will you imagine if the woman particularly as she goes into later pregnancy in the fetus larger and larger has decreased breathing room That is GonNa, make any respiratory infection in which you're breathing capacity is being affected by the infection itself. That's going to double down and make it even tougher to adequately oxygen at your blood. You basically have less room to breathe right and that's a serious impediment. If you're already sort of breathing at bat reduced level and then you have a virus causing an infection that is filling some of your breathing space with fluid, you can imagine how you could get into serious trouble quite quickly. What about the cardiovascular issues and how does that interact with the new corona virus? Well there's a couple of things one just the amount of work I mean the body. So amazing women pump by the time they're in late pregnancy, fifty percent more blood than they normally have. So there's a ton of blood circulating and that can lead to lots of fluid exiting into the lungs and making a bad problem worse, and then we know that the virus cannon does have bad effects on the heart and blood vessels which are already under strain because of the pregnancy. So again, the virus is potentially aiding and making worse this part that's kind of punching at the. Top of its weight already, there's a final effect that's not fully understood and not fully pin down, but it's known that the corona virus causes increased clotting in some patients. The blood has more of a tendency to clot will guess what in pregnancy the blood already has more of a tendency to plot. So now you layer an increased tendency to clot on top of an increased tendency to clot, and you can see where women can also get into trouble with clotting, which independently been a problem in serious of covid nineteen. We just talked about how the virus pregnancy my. Interact in a negative way. What is the evidence for the fact that women fare worse when pregnant and infected with a new coronavirus will there was a much notice steady that came out of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention late in June that showed that pregnant women with Cova. Did were up to fifty percent more likely to end up in intensive care and seventy percent more likely to end up needing a breathing machine. Then they're infected but non-pregnant peers. Now there, there's some caveats to that study number one they were not more likely to die which is reassuring. Number two even though this was a lot of pregnant women that CDC looked at about ninety, one thousand, it was only twenty eight percent of all the women of reproductive age that have had covert and have had their covert reported to. CDC, through early June. Why is that? Because these reports have a box that say check pregnancy status? Yes pregnant no not pregnant and many many basically seventy, two percent of the reports that CDC received came in without either. Box, checked, and so they couldn't use that data and that makes the study quite incomplete. There's a more comprehensive but much smaller study that was published by the public. Health Agency of Sweden into lie and it found that the women who were pregnant for landing in ICU, at six times the rate of non-pregnant women what's unique about this study is captured. All ICU. Missions in. Sweden and it used Disa- dominator, all non-pregnant and all pregnant women of reproductive. Agents Sweden. This study was very small however in the end only thirteen corona virus, infected pregnant women, and forty non-pregnant infected women were admitted to Swedish I see us in the timeframe of the study.
Long-Haulers Deal With Symptoms Weeks After Coronavirus Infection
"Doctor. Let me start you with this one. This is Ah, question we've had come up before Four. Public awareness. Could you discuss Post Cove in medical conditions in layperson's terms? In other words, Once someone has quote unquote survived or gotten through the disease? What's the future look like? What do we know now? Sure. Well, that's a relatively new recognition that recovery from Kobe. It may not be a rapid return to one's previous state of health. I would still be optimistic that many individuals will return to their previous state of health, but it may not be and weeks or even a few months, it may take longer. But we don't As you said earlier. We don't have the complete ark of this because of the relative newness. I would put the Post Cove it concerns into three buckets. One would be just ongoing fatigue and recovery from any illness can have a phase of fatigue. That lives beyond when the virus itself is gone. So I think that one would have to gradually re engage in exercise and all of their usual activities, with some expectation that the elimination of the virus may not lead to feeling 100 per cent. As they did before. So fatigue would be the first bucket. The second would be respiratory, meaning that any pneumonia and certainly this one because it is primarily a respiratory infection can lead to either transient or in some rarer in instances. Ongoing loss of lung function so there could be scarring or restriction of one's ability to get enough oxygen, particularly during exercise, So I think we're still mindful that people with Post Covic symptoms could be reflective of some degree of lung injury from the pneumonia. And the third and probably most interesting and unknown is other effects after one has recovered from Cove it such as cognitive Such as heart with his so called mile card itis. Where either during or after the active infection, there could be inflammation of other tissues, including the heart. Which could also be part of the ability to inability to exercise normally. So there are myriad other organ systems involved by covert. We know this. There are clots. It's very unique in that way, and that people can have either small clots in the extremities so called covert toes or potentially even clots and more major blood vessels that lead to organ damage, and those two could contribute to Post Cove it

Fauci: There is not "a lot of definitive evidence" that coronavirus can transmit through airborne spread, but it should not be ruled out
"CROWBARS cases are increasing and at least thirty six states this week Texas set a new record high for the number of new cases in a single day today, topping ten thousand cases for the first time at ten, thousand and twenty eight Arizona set a new grim record high for the number of coronavirus deaths in a single day today at one hundred seventeen. Some states reversing their policy. On allowing indoor dining in restaurants today, Dr, Anthony Fauci said this. When you talk about heiress, ill or airborne? There have been demonstrations viruses. That can actually stay in the air for much longer enhance. Get caught up in the circulation system of given room. There isn't a lot of definitive evidence about what the impact of the Aristotle Ization is on covert expression. However, we have some good examples back with SARS which is a similar virus where they were clear cut examples of spread by Aerosol. Juror discussion now is Dr. Peter says. He is the dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine and the CO director of the Texas Children's Hospital Center for Vaccine Development Doctor. Thank you very much for joining us tonight, and just in reaction to what Dr Fauci was just saying in the whole question of indoor dining in restaurants, one of the simple messages is being outside is better than being inside. Yeah that's right now. We know that droplet contact is a major out of transmission meaning that somebody has this virus and what we know about this viruses, that's it's president. High amounts in the Upper Airways speaking, or you cough. You released a lot of virus, and then gets on surfaces or land on people's face. We've known about that for a long time, but a lot of us have suspected that it does something more which is lingers in the atmosphere as well. Well and it turns out not allowed to respiratory viruses. Actually do this easels, does it chicken pox? Virus does and this one almost certainly does this as well, and that's one of the reasons why this is so highly transmissible that high amount of virus, the upper airway and the fact that those particles are released, and so many of those people are without symptoms. So this is what makes it so hard to do. The contact tracing into really manage these epidemics. I? WanNa. Get your view of something. We discussed last night on this program. And that is the the possibility that the real range of possible symptoms is almost unlimited because of the fact that the. Although we think of it as a respiratory of problem, there's also a vascular problem because of the way it seems to get into the bloodstream and those New York Times. Reporter indicating that you could walk into a doctor with just symptoms of feeling, generally bad, and and that could be worthy of Corona virus testing. That's right. There's a huge number of different presentations gastrointestinal presentations prison, presenting coughing and early on in this epidemic we were always told about cough and fever, and that certainly does occur, but the big worrisome one now is the fact that we know this virus binds to certain receptors on the cells, lining blood vessels, and this is causing blood clots warm, so you're seeing pulmonary embolism. You're seeing strokes. You're seeing heart attacks, and that's happening because this virus induces blood clots in the coronary artery, and so one of the big concerns now is, we're people with sudden deaths at. At home people maybe in the early stages of this illness, and this is one of the reasons why so terrifying when the President says ninety nine percent of the cases are harmless, is just not true, and we need to step up our game in the US in terms of interrupting community transmission, the number of cases is going up and up and up forty thousand last week than fifty thousand. Now it's going to be over sixty thousand towards the end of this week with no end in sight so with this epidemic tragically a spiraling out of control right now. and Dr, who does the way you described that? Possibility of sudden death at home would also be a one of the reasons why the death count is, so it is understated in our statistical analysis of it so far. Yeah absolutely, and we're trying to tease out exactly. All of the ramifications we know for instance uncertain about a sudden deaths from covid nineteen. The other thing that happens is when covert night team strikes that community. The people don't take care of themselves. They're reluctant to go to the doctor with symptoms because they're worried of our contracting Cova Nineteen, so we think that may be a component of it as well l., but it's a lethal combination in so many undiagnosed cases, so we're. We're going to get her better handle lot in the coming months, but for now this is a serious and deadly infection.

Why Do We Get Bags Under Our Eyes?
"When I was growing up, I had a science teacher named Mr Thayer. He had these really deep set eyes with dark circles around them and loose baggy skin underneath at the time. I thought his eyes were really cool like they made him. Look wise and knowledgeable, and now I'm probably the same age Mr Thera was then and I've got bags under my eyes, but they don't seem as cool now. They just make me look tired all the time, but here's the thing sooner or later. All of us are going to have them. We all get bags under our eyes. So what causes them anyways? And how should we treat them? Them, well, there are lots of possible causes for what scientifically known as para, orbital, hyper chromium, but the most obvious one is aging see, we may not like to talk about this in certain circles, but we all have fat above below and behind our is for cushioning. This is in case. Something slams into your I like say a fist. The fat will take most of the blow and save your SCO from some damage, but as we get older, the Septum orbital ligaments in our skin decompose, and all that gooey fat pushes down, and out in the skin, loosens into swollen puffy bags, and this thin weeks skin exposes the tiny blood vessels underneath making our fat. I bags. Look Darker. Also as we lose volume around our is our orbital bones are exposed creating a kind of depressed gutter, revealing our eyes sockets. If you've already got forward, said is in receiving cheekbones. Those gutters are going to look even deeper, and there are reasons other than aging that contribute to these lovely dark fat bags under our eyes genetic help if your mother or father have eye bags, you probably will to also any kind of fluid buildup around the is is going to make the bags worse because fat cells are mainly made of water sinus infections from. For instance, which I often get stretched the skin under your eyes, even more also crying right before bed, which I often do has the same effect when you get bags under your eyes from fluid retention like this there most noticeable in the morning, other causes of water attention under your eyes can include salty food and premenstrual hormonal changes, and let's face it if you're up late. Burning the candle at both. Both ends that doesn't help either neither does a lack of exercise, but if you're really looking for something else to blame, those dark circles are sometimes caused by an excess of Melanin pigmentation deposits in the skin. So I know you're all out there, wondering but Christian. What's your secret? How do you treat your bags? Well? Of course, you can always cover them up with makeup or you can turn to. To your friendly neighborhood doctor for needles and SCALPELS 's for instance, dermatologists often inject wrinkle fillers with awesome names like Juvenile Durham and wrestling under eye muscles to reduce their baggage mix that with some bow talks, and you'll look years younger. It's only a couple thousand dollars every eight months, or you can spend big and go under the knife for surgery. The official name is Blah Ferro plastic and how it. It works is the doctor makes a few incisions in your eyelid melts the fat inside of there, and either removes it or repositions it sometimes they even add more with fat grafts, then they tuck in the remaining loose skin and use lasers to firm it up, sounds cool right, and if pigment is your problem, they can blasted with intense pulse lights to destroy your cells and smooth out your skin. Okay so maybe you're thinking now. Christian I don't want someone to stab me in the eyes or Christian I'm cool with the stabbing in the burning, but that surgery sounds awfully expensive well, here's a couple home remedies I can share with you if the bags under your eyes are from fluid retention rather than aging, you can cool something like a cucumber slice or tea bags and place them on your is. The cold will restrict your blood vessels and reduce the swelling. Some people. Cream made a fish cartilage compounds to. To keep the vessels from expanding in the first place, you can also try sleeping with an extra pillow to elevate your head, so the fluid just drains out of your face while you're sleeping or change the position you're sleeping in like if you have one of those weird one droopy eyelids, that's probably because you sleep on your side and gravity is taking effect. People put all kinds of stuff on their eyelids to reduce swelling everything from vitamins to Henry Cream, and some recommend that you quit cigarettes and put sunscreen. Your eyes because both smoking and sunlight can weaken the Collagen in your face and cause premature fat bag sagging. So here's the deal. We may not like the bags under our eyes, but they're usually harmless, but if you've got swollen, red, itching painful is, you should probably go see a doctor.
Improve Brain Health
"I'm Mary. Mickley and I wonder how you are doing this week. I hope you are noticing. How your heart feels win, you encounter stress. When you encounter joy. When you encounter the wide range of emotions, we all experience. D Today. In today's episode, we continue with our heart rain series. Where you are discovering. How to manage the health of your heart and brain? They are so interconnected. In, fact I was doing a little research for this series and I came across an article by Harvard Health Publishing. This is an article by Dr Monique Tello. It's titled Green. Health rests on heart. Health guidelines for lifestyle changes. And she starts off the article. Talking about how? Right now the world is experiencing an epidemic. That is projected to get much much worse. When I read that I thought she was talking about the coronavirus pandemic. We are experiencing. I read further and she is actually talking about an epidemic of dementia. Of affecting fifty million people. And millions more. Of their caregivers Dr Tallow goes on to say that. These staggering numbers are projected to triple by twenty fifty. So in this pandemic. We are all experiencing. There's this epidemic of dementia which stress contributes to so what we're experiencing now. Is Not likely helping to improve our odds. To battle dementia. Dementia is a progressive heartbreaking deterioration of brain functioning. Associated with aging. And there are different causes of dementia, the most common Alzheimer's and Vascular Dementia Cz. Are, now thought to be closely related to and impacted. By this same diet and lifestyle factors that you follow for your heart. So you. Heard. Physical exercise such as hundred and fifty minutes per week is one of the number one ways to combat dementia and also to protect your heart health. Eating a plant based Diet in this article. Dr Tallow explains is crucial. She says there's so much substantial research showing that eating a diet high in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, which includes some healthy fats and seafood is associated with a significantly lower risk of cognitive decline and dementia and also heart disease. So. Think about your diet and the amount of. You're getting. These are also great lifestyle changes. We can make to improve our odds if we happen to contract the corona virus. It's also recommended to quit smoking and to minimize alcohol. Use especially if you already experience cognitive concerns. So how is heart health related to cognitive health? It has to do. With conditions that clog the arteries of the heart. They also clog arteries of the rest of the body including your brain. So it all boils down to damage of the arteries. The blood vessels that are critical blood, flow and oxygen delivery to the organs. Reducing stress and making sure that you have positive relationships in your mind. In fact, there's other research that shows that. Your relationship are pivotal to your heart health and your brain health especially romantic relationships. If you're married or have a partner. These significant relationships in our lives impact our heart and brain health greatly. So take care. Of Your heart and your mind. By eating well, exercising by staying away from alcohol and smoking. And reducing stress and improving your relationships.

"Switching knows how to turn on and turn it on. Turn up and turn it down pretty hard to flood the system to kill it. Okay unless US pharmaceuticals, which then it's really easy to write a prescription to kill something. But natural compounds and supplements can generally help the body cokes systems along the the scary thing with nicotine is that when it's extracted from a tobacco? It is a pharmaceutical compound and it's. A little violence kill you. If you're to drink at it, it's pretty potent and I. Do know there are studies that show very high doses of oral or smokes nicotine. Because negative effects on blood flow in the penis, erectile dysfunction in hair loss. So you know there's a dose dependent curve here, but it sounds like you're saying the answer is. It's complex. It be good at might be bad, but it's a complex system. We don't really know what will actually I'll I'll. I'll try to simplify him or something called the bell, shaped curve or a little bit. A little bit is does nothing. A little bit more starts to show activity Moore's better. Moore's better than you get the optimum amount, and then and then after that. Whatever that peak is then you start losing the goodness until you get sometimes the badness and so think about these natural compounds as really a volume switch. If it's too low. You can't hear you. Bring it to just the right amount. That's kind of how the body works receptors these. stimulators and then you turn around too much. This is why I think when you really take a look at leveraging and enhancing how your body wants to work, you want to upgrade your body. You always WANNA. figure out like we're that set point is because more isn't always more sometimes more get you less, and so that's I think that one of the important adjustments of thinking there's a there is a scientific term for it's called Horn Maecenas in. That describes u-shaped. Curve Very Important I. think Frankly most people in the train in the pharmaceutical. Just don't doesn't even part of the vocabulary. Most people don't understand you shape curving yet, so fundamental is basic biology a little bit not enough too much is bad. You WanNa find at Goldilocks zone. You know we're. Where's the? You know the the support just right to hot or too cold. So you're at home, NFL in that great, you might have cove. It maybe tested positive. D US One milligram nicotine, or do you not use on Graham dictates I I. Don't know because I hadn't really thought about. You brought it up, but now I'M GONNA. Ask you think about it all right. There's some interesting stuff coming out of France at first and then I think in China. They also found that and you think people have smoked generally are unhealthy. But if you're smoking diabetic, your seriously in trouble, but if you're smoking, not diabetic, you had, you might be more likely to get it, but less likely to go to the hospital. have any other effects from it and who knows why, but. I will tell you. Smoking does damage the endothelial lining. For Lots of reasons besides nicotine and so those people are more likely going to be more likely to have the kind of injury from cove it. Because they've already got compromise into helium so that that's the one thing that I can tell you that if if you smoke any of your in this covid nineteen era. Now's a good time to quit. Absolutely well well said. Thanks for coming in and talking in detail I think we shared everything. That's understandable. In. If if you're listening to this show, and you're saying I'm not quite sure I got that All the transcripts were there on the blog. There's posts about all this kind of stuff I would encourage you to read Dr Lee's book. which is called, eat to beat disease and don't be perfect. Just do a few more things to be more resilient. Donate so much sugar donate the really bad junkie, fats and things like that, and if you did that, you'd probably move the needle in a meaningful way, and if you get a little bit higher up the curve, you'll be better, but fear of not being perfect fear that you know you might have not Lysol the edge of your mask or something like that.

"Know. We're we're not that way. So like music head, just pop tarts. Now. You're right. It's it's a fascinating way of thinking about during a pandemic. What do that's different and you know the idea, okay? You might not be able to get guava, but you can certainly do a supplement you have to. You could probably get some tomatoes, but you do your best, but perfection is not required. which which I think is is a really important thing. Dietary fiber for your microbiomes also really important. Because pretty much, you know there's an air traffic control system. Your gut bacteria in your in our intestines said really helps to air traffic control your immune system right so the that seventy percent of immune systems as in our gut, not elsewhere. When I went to medical school. That's not what was taught now. We know that pretty much. You know like gut, bacteria and immune system. They're like old college roommates within wall, which is your gut? Bacteria just knock on that wall and immune system inherited, and basically respond to. I in the early days of of the pandemic, said all right. Let's look at the site. Oh, kinds of I, l six is kind that's happening so I have I know a lot about six because he gets elevated toxic mold and the documentary toxic mold. It's a it's been a big part of my. Losing one hundred pounds, so I'm like here's forty things including blueberries. And Green Tea extract and. In fact everything, but we've talked about lowers I L six. If you want to stop the kind storm. while. It seems like you take a bunch of that stuff, and you're much less likely to get the overwhelming inflammation. What's the connection between your arterial lining and the side of the storm? So when we dove down into these tissues, people who had died of covid nineteen, we specifically looked at the site of kinds and the general belief, the one that was it's an immediate and she. Most medical community thinks this is at the site of kind storm. Is your immune system pretty much emptying always luggage into the onto the bed. We showed that the virus actually manipulate society kinds in very specific ways. Yes, and this virus actually turns up certain side kinds interns down certain kinds. It turns on the ones that helps it grow and turns down the ones that Ashley. Are How harmful for it, so it's a diabolical thing. It's more of a it's. It's it's not so much sort of like this wildfire, which is how people think about side kind storms, big inflammation lung can't stop it. Runaway freight train kind of inflammation now this is more like a bond villain hiding volcano with a diabolical plot to take over the world. It is it's very interesting when you get deep into what bacteria in apparently some viruses do they don't just randomly wantonly kills stuff. There's a reason they do it. And some of the bacterial things like Bartonella, which is a lime co-infection, NBC itself. They're causing Sadeq because when they could blow up a cell, the guts of the cell to grow more of themselves. They're doing it strategically not to give you. Love handles or to make you feel bad. And, so it's hard to imagine that a virus would evolve in bats and all that stuff. That was going to just spend its its you genetic cycles. It's not really alive to have ATP and all that, but why would it do that if there wasn't an evolutionary benefits over time? Exactly I mean it's so. We don't understand it fully yet, but I will tell you Dave you know the the classic side. Kind storm is basically the guy going into town score with an explosive vest blowing everything. That's not what's happening. You can trigger that chemically, but you get very different signs. In fact, you can trigger it with hypotheses, and you get different side against, but if it's. If it's a a thing you're measuring the specific ones you can. No, it's a smoking gun is like a fingerprint. Almost in fact I bet. Yeah, you could tell. Oh, this is Kovic, just on which side of kinds of rain what ratio if I could show you the data? It looks exactly like fingerprints when you map out. Although world's arches of actually what's actually happening with Assad kind is clearly there's a pattern it is, and by the way we also compared. This was people who died of H, one n one from the first SARS in his completely different. There's some overlap, but is completely different. That is fascinating. Right one more question for you before we end the interview. I have been an outspoken proponent of Microsoft Nicotine, not smoking, not tobacco, but nicotine itself as we age because of the thirty thirty five years of research, showing that reduces Alzheimer's disease in increase, is something called PG one Alpha the same exercise as and encourages angiogenesis. So we're talking one milligram in your forties, two milligrams a day as cigarettes, twenty milligrams, or just like one little spray, the half little tablet, a little bit of gum here. As as it makes, you feel good in you, you can write books and stuff like good for the brain. And some studies are saying people smoke. Don't get sick, but other studies say Oh, nicotine increases number. Basti receptors in the spike proteins are going to come and get you. And Sue questions for you. One Nicotine, not smoking good bad for your. your arterial lining or or during coronavirus is the answer. The same both times is a different. Sometimes. You know what would you? Would you start nicotine there in France right now? You know Such a sophisticated sharp question you're asking and I'll try to boil down what I know about it. and nobody nobody knows whether it's the right thing to do for corona virus, but I'll tell you one thing. We started off this interview, talking about the lining of your blood vessels, the endothelial cells, and it turns out that one of the receptors. The cellular receptors on endothelial cells is called the nicotinic acid receptor it loves and do legal sells love nicotine for this by the way this is this this developed before cigarettes were developed once. Let's remember that is that we evolved. From the time we dragged her knuckles on the ground. Until the time we list rob before any cigarettes when Bennett, nicotinic acid, receptors or undersea they actually respond to them, and in fact, if you actually tickle the nicotinic acid receptor as we during development so growing up in the womb, developing as a kid exercising our muscles, those receptors are being stimulated, and they help endothelial cells become active. Now things get more murky been convoluted when you start mixing smoking in it. Smoking's bad smoking's bad right, so you're not talking about smoking. Think so many people confused smoking and nicotine as going hand in hand, this possible a separate nicotine, and in fact there's a one camp of angiogenesis researchers that were actually exactly looking at nicotine or nicotine analogs for stimulating into cellular receptors, so those nicotinic receptors in order to make the endothelium more healthy, and so it's it's a really really interesting thing. It also stimulates different. You know you think smoking is Selfish Causes Vasoconstriction? gas actually helps to control the expression, nitric oxide, which is a visa die later, and so it's not quite as simple as black-and-white. Good guy by connected cigarettes therefore must be bad. I really think that you know as we think about fees triggers and signals in our bodies we need to. We need to recognize if our bodies designed to handle it. It's probably designed it in a way. This got its own reestablish its own volume..

"You see anything with red blood cells themselves? Did you look at those we did We didn't see much invasion in the red blood cells. We saw them. We saw the viruses kind of hovering around them. Find like UFO's around them, but they weren't. We didn't see them actually getting into the red blood cells that'd be like malaria or you know some other. Wrestle invading. The reason I'm asking is I came across an intriguing set of three studies? From three different mechanisms through different research groups that all said there's something going on with our haemoglobin. Are you familiar with that research? there's been so much research. Tell me which ones you're looking at So these were all groups that said that there's damaged in hemoglobin that is. There to the extent that is releasing free iron. So essentially shredding hemoglobin. and. Here's the genetic propensity other another one. Here's what it's doing. There are there are different mechanisms in different groups who apparently weren't talking to each other, and they all like when you see three of those that all say the same thing that like ads probably happening. And then I look at at that and look at what's going on with These walking hypotheses people, so you get one of these little S. P. O. Two meters on my finger now if you're watching on Youtube. And it's funny. There's people who walk around at ninety percent. blood saturation by the way you probably go to the ICU if you're ninety are a little bit less. And I, know about these things because I do intermittent hypoc training, and because I used to have actually pseudo hypoxia issues throughout my body. Thank you, lime disease and toxic mold. So like. Oh I, I see this and the symptoms of hypoglycemia are extensive blood clotting. Problems with the end of the Ilia layers specifically. Kidney damage, you get the most hypotheses in the toes, Cova toes damage to the to the heart damage to the brain. And symptoms, the free iron are damage to the lining of arteries and damage, various specifically to the lungs where you see at the most where there's oxygen plus iron and I'm thinking how much of this is hemoglobin. How much of this is actually just a direct attack on the lining of the pipes? So to speak? Yes, so I'll I'll try to put it together for you as it so this is this. We're actually trying to dissect apart a disaster natural disaster in slow motion, so I'm I'm telling. Telling you I'm giving you a picture of what we know today. Cool and I actually think it actually help help make sensible this so here's what we saw. We saw the virus invading the endothelial cells and vascular cells, lining blood vessels, and shredding them from the inside out now the endothelial lining is important is incredibly important. It's actually the slippery surface that all of our blood cells actually tumble along has our heart pumps. You know the the the leaders of blood through our body on every single minute. If you wind up having any disturbance, the lining of the smooth surface, slippery surface of lining, so think about the normal endothelium being like ice skating rink after the Zamboni machine ran over it. Cleanly ice smooth, slippery surface. You're going to go out there and you're going to escape like like nobody else. If you wind up having scuffing up the ice. That's damaged endothelium. Now your escape is cut, and you start tripping fallen. That's that actually can start shredding red blood cells, and causing blood clots, the more blood clots. You have the more shredding you have of the red blood cells, the more iron you start releasing, and there's one more thing that we found. Before you're GonNa win thing just to make sure I understand this. You're proposing that. The damage to the lining of the lungs, causing damage to red blood cells, releasing free iron, rather than going on specifically with The red blood cells themselves. You know I I can't exclude that. Okay? This is you know I think we don't know enough about this to to be able to say. You're proposing, but you're not saying you know you're hypothesizing and you're sorta going on what you've seen. But excluding other things we're not excluding are things I will tell you what we do now. Is that when you actually damage into? And we found this out by looking at these lungs, the blood clots reforming right exactly where the damaged endothelium is. This is very consistent with the pathology of what you would expect now. Here's the other thing that we observe. That was really unusual. Blood vessels when they're blocked in that intermittent hypothesis situation that you talked about. They normally have a response, an emergency response, so think about pulling a fire alarm in a building when you start seeing smoke, come down a hallway that emergency alarm which sets off the alarm has blood vessels trying to divide so you can bypass blockages really really quickly. This is a reaction and we call it. A reactive form of angiogenesis has got A. A fancy name called entice assumption, and it's think about it as a single blood vessel in your urine, a car, driving down a single lane tunnel, and there's an emergency, so the tunnel now needs to divide into two, and you're driving down his tunnel, and what it does is the tunnel drops a sheet rock from the ceiling to the floor, and then it splits from one vessel to two in an attempt to bypass. Now you're the. The car, red blood cell, trying to drive through that, you can't get through now and so now you tumble through, and you get caught up in damage into theme now it's even more cloudy and the second reasonably close reforms in susceptive reactive angiogenesis. This normally happens is for a few minutes. We found this happening time and time again over vast sectors of the lung. Now. Even though you have this reaction, you can't do the bypass and. And this we also explains that happy hypoxia. You were describing happy. Hypoxia really means that people that shouldn't be sitting up talking on a cell phone or talking to the family member or talking to the doctor and emerged through shouldn't be sitting up with a pulse ox, an option saturation of eighty, five eighty, even lower than that they should be unconscious and what we think is happening. Are you seeing people at eighty now? Yes, there's. God I'll take myself down to eighty by breathing air with no oxygen in it on purpose but men. You're seriously loopy at eighty. I can't imagine driving in that state and what we're saying is that the these massive reactive angiogenesis? Cloudy lungs are forming in different geographies as along so think about along like a Cherry Pie and you've cut it up into different segments, and now you're actually mashing different segments one at a time. You still got a little viable pie up until the last last chunk. It's like smash down, so we think that what's happening is that. That the remaining pieces of Pie Pizza Pie in the lung that are still oxygen are just hanging on keeping you conscious able to do your thing, and then suddenly you kinda tip over when you hit that last piece of Pie smash down that set you drop like a rock, and this is not something we see with h one n one..
Is Powdered Milk Bad For You?
"Recently a listener posted a question about powdered milk on my facebook page. She was wondering whether it's okay to use dried or powdered milk in place a fresh milk. Powdered milk, of course less expensive than fresh milk. It's relatively nonperishable. It's lightweight and portable, and for those reasons, many people include powdered milk in their emergency food stores. In terms of nutrients like. Protein and potassium dried. Milk is comparable to fresh milk, and like fresh milk dried milk powder is usually fortified with vitamins, a and d. you can add dried milk to breads and other baked goods, soups, sauces, smoothies, or other recipes in order to add extra protein and other nutrients. But if you research this question on the Internet, you will quickly come across some sources, claiming that powdered milk is extremely bad for you because it contains oxidized cholesterol, allegedly the most dangerous type of cholesterol. Some of these websites also claimed that powdered milk is added to all low fat and fat free milk in order to give it more body, and they say that there's no way for you to tell whether or not your milk contains added dry milk, because the passengers are not required to list powdered milk in the ingredient list. I mean pretty scary stuff, right? Well as is typical of the nutrition information that you find online, the claims about powdered milk are a jumble of fact, half truths and outright fallacies, so let's take a closer look at the properties and the potential dangers of powdered milk in order to make dried milk pasteurized milk is I concentrated through evaporation, and then it's usually sprayed into a heated tank, and that causes the remaining water to quickly evaporate leaving behind dried milk solids. Milk can also be freeze dried, and because of the lower processing temperatures freeze dried may actually taste more like fresh milk when it's reconstituted, but this much more expensive process, and therefore it's a lot less common. It is true that packager could add dried milk to fresh milk, and because of the way the FDA labeling regulations define milk. They would not be required to list powdered milk in the ingredient list. However, it is absolutely not true that all skim and low fat milk has dried milk added to it. In fact, you might have to work pretty hard to find some that does have dried milk attitude. I spoke with representatives for half a dozen different brands of milk, including national brands like stony field farms and horizon as well as my local store brand, both the organic as well as the conventional and none of them. Add any dried milk to their fresh milk products. There is a brand that you may have seen called. Skim plus it's marketed as being creamier than regular skim milk, and they create that creamy texture by adding dried milk powder to the fresh milk and sure enough. The dried milk is not listed separately in the ingredient list. However when you add dried milk to fresh milk, it also increases the protein content, so you could always just take a quick look at the nutrition facts label, and if you see milk that contains more than nine grams of protein per one cup serving, they may indeed have added dry milk powder to it and if it doesn't, you can be pretty sure that they didn't. Now while you're checking those nutrition facts labels, you may come across fair life milk. This is a brand of milk that is fifty percent higher in protein than normal milk. However, in this case, it's not because they've added dried milk. Instead Fair life is made by passing fresh milk through a series of specialized filters that remove some of the lactose and then and up concentrating the protein. Okay. So, what's all this about? oxidized cholesterol. oxidized cholesterol is cholesterol that's been sort of roughed up around the edges, and that makes it particularly irritating to your blood vessels to make a long story short that irritation is what triggers the formation of plaques, and that is the beginning of heart disease, and what's worse, oxidized cholesterol molecules can intern oxidizer other cholesterol molecules setting off a sort of chain reaction. And it is also true that in the process of turning fresh milk into a powder, the cholesterol in the milk is likely to get oxidized, but nonfat dried milk is not going to be a significant source of oxidized cholesterol, because nonfat milk contains almost no cholesterol to begin with so i. don't think that you need to go out of your way to avoid nonfat dry milk or products that are made with it. Whole milk is somewhat higher in cholesterol so powdered whole milk would pose more of a concern, but perhaps the biggest concern with

People are turning out for protests all across the country, the other big story, the coronavirus pandemic is still with us, and we'll covid. Nineteen was initially thought to be a respiratory disease. Many of the symptoms have another thing in common poor blood, circulation and blood vessel damage. Forty percent of deaths from coronavirus are related cardiovascular complications for more on how this disease is starting to look like a vascular infection, instead of a purely respiratory one. We'll speak to Dana Smith senior writer at elemental I mean. mean, it's a really bizarre infection and I WANNA. Be Clear curves is definitely still impacting. The long people do still have pneumonia like we initially thought they did, but like you said there's a lot of really bizarre other symptoms that have emerged things like strokes and blood clots, a lot of cardiovascular complications that you don't typically see with normal respiratory disease, so emerged in the last month or two that it could be that the viruses, not only infecting cells in the long the respiratory tract but also. Also affecting blood vessel cells, and that's really unique. Not many viruses do this and we don't think there's any other respiratory viruses. As far as we know that do this. Also the original virus influenza viruses don't in fact, these blood vessel cells, so it's really unique for Kobe to the novel coronavirus in particular, and it could explain a lot of these really strange and really deadly complications that we're seeing so let's talk a little bit about how it progresses through the body SARS covy to go through. Through the body and connects to these AC two receptors that are usually in the nose and throat, and from there what happens, it can start destroying some lung tissue, and it can break open some blood vessels, and then start attaching to all these other cells that have to do with the blood vessels, endothelial cells, and then it creates this immune response, and then everything starts going haywire, but it seems that all these other side effects seemed to be kind of coming from the blood vessel problems. So. We know that Koby to get into. The virus has to latch onto these as two receptors, and as peer with there's all through your nose and your respiratory tract, and then your lungs sexually all of your body. There's a in the intestines there some even in the brain, and they're also on these blood vessels, so we think that just like we've always thought about the virus. Virus gets into the body through the nose and throat. Which is why you still need to wash your hands. Don't touch your face. Avoid being around. People who are coughing all the Dander recommendations that were protocol are still the same with this new development, so we still get infected through the respiratory tract, and the virus traveled down into the lungs where it is still causing damage and. The unique part is this kind of final step where it does actually get into the blood vessel cells, still activating on those as to receptors on the blood vessel cells, and for their travel everywhere in the body, and so that's why we start seeing these really bizarre symptoms like the Cova toes that people are talking about. That could be problem with circulation all the way to your to your fingers and toes. It's why you start seeing the blood clot. It's why we're seeing potentially. Potentially damage in the intestines and the liver and the kidneys, really serious diseases 'cause a lot of inflammation can cause those organs to shutdown just as part of the body's Kinda overactive immune response. Just what we thought was happening with cove, nineteen to begin with, and that still could be the case, but the evidence announcing that there's this kind of other route that the virus is using to infect and cause damage, and these other organ systems as well. That's why people with preexisting. Preexisting conditions high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes heart disease. They're all at higher risk for this. Because of all that inflammation that's going on there and learning some of this. It's also making people rethink how to treat this early on. There was a lot of talks about antiviral drugs. And maybe that's not the course really to take with. This may be. You have to treat it differently. That's why for people were saying that. The ventilators aren't even working the way they thought they were. were, initially, and I wanna be I think antivirals still will help. It's still a pretty big question mark, but we do see a little bit of benefit with a drug like Rim Desa. Veer. I. Think one issue is how early you give it, so if too much damage has already been caused if the viruses already spread to the blood vessels and to late for an antiviral drug, but if you give it early on in the infection, it could really help the immune system. System defend virus, but the big question now is. How do we treat the symptoms fast and so the respirators? If you put one on ventilation, it's just helping. Push air into the one. So when we thought that people aren't getting enough oxygen in their lungs. That was kind of the natural first step to take, but like. You said it didn't help as many people as we thought we hoped it would. The one issue with the blood vessel damage is that the lungs can't do? Do the normal transfer of auction carbon dioxide in the blood. That's what the blood vessels in the longer four they take the good auction. They put it into the blood, and they pull the carbon dioxide out, and then your lungs, hell that, but with the damage to the blood vessels process is kinda cut short, and so that's people are still not getting enough oxygen into the blood, even though they're on ventilators and to be honest I don't know if there's a good solution. Solution or a good treatment for that, you know it's the doctors are certainly looking into, but then like you said another possible treatment are drugs that actually stabilized and deal cells and kind of help reinforce them, and so really common drugs like statins and two or ace inhibitors can actually help protect endothelial cells, but that might be one way to prevent some of these symptoms that we're seeing with the blood vessel damage. That's what we've been treating the virus from the very beginning. Beginning treating the symptoms and all that, so maybe this is just kind of another thing that we can look toward to help. Treat the virus, and hopefully get people a little more comfortable with until we can get a vaccine and wider immunity concert presenting itself, but still for now we've been hearing this a lot that the SARS covy to cove in nineteen dozen fact affect the blood vessels quite a bit, Dana, Smith senior writer at elemental. Thank you very much for joining us. For this week right now there's over a hundred corona virus vaccine candidates in various stages of testing and one finally breaks through. It may not be as simple as one shot and you're done. There's a high likelihood that eventual vaccine could be a two dose protocol given a month or two apart for more on why you might end up. Needing to corona virus shots will speak to Elizabeth Wiese reporter at USA. Today, this is a virus, so it's your human beings, which means we don't. Don't have antibodies to it or very near cousins unless you were exposed to servers, which hopefully you haven't been, so it looks as if there's about ten vaccine candidates that are kind of a little further along their in human trials, an of those, at least seven are presuming they will need to shots. Get One probably wait a month to two months, and then get a second one, and then you'd be fully immunized and protected, so it wouldn't just be a single job and you're done. And the way it works is that that I shot would kind of primes the immune system. It's help it recognized. The virus may be start getting some antibodies going, and then the second one strengthens that immune response as you mentioned that gives you that immunity for a little bit of time thereafter. That's the other piece of it that we don't know yet is how long the immunity that you get from. The vaccination will work, and there's some diseases that easels for example once you're immunized. You're set for life. Polio smallpox under others influenza for example where you have to get vaccinated every year. There's some data that looks and this goes to.

"Transitioning between pressure so it takes five or eight minutes to get to pressure and it might take another five minutes to get down from pressure. You want your APP. You know what I'm saying when you're at pressure you know you're like four and a half years. I you can do whatever you want at pressure okay. Because once you're at pressure your all your your airways are already equalized but you cannot hold your breath. Let's say at pressure. Because you're not gonNA equalize exactly and then let let the air out. So just make sure that. During transitional periods going you know the initial pressurization and the deep records You breathe normally throughout those transition periods. But once you're at pressure you can do whatever you want just for you for safety. Want to make sure. Yeah that makes perfect sense okay. Cool and speaking of safety. Tell me if this is a myth because someone found out that my kids go in there to lay around and read books and they absolutely love it. They love to zip themselves up. And and do the hype. Eric and I think it's wonderful for them based on everything that I've seen But someone told me that there is risk of spontaneous combustion if you have something phone in there and it throws off a spark or if you have pieces of paper such as a book that are rubbing together And that you could literally Kinda like that movie dead poll. Just blow the whole thing up. Is this a concern? Yeah so that I cover so many right. I think that's one of the reasons that hyperbaric never really got the the understanding recognition until now that it pretty well deserves. I think is that. There's just so many myths around hyperbaric we could do. A whole podcast is on that. But you know understand this There's no risk of you know in other words rubbing Together right now In Your House you're at twenty one percent oxygen. You could light a lighter at twenty one percent oxygen. It's GonNa burn because it's twenty one percent oxygen but it's not any more risk in route so inside that chamber you're still twenty one percent oxygen. You're compressing with twenty one percent oxygen. The risk is in hospital setting when you're at one hundred percent oxygen and your entire environment that you're bathing is a hundred percent oxygen. You're literally the equivalent of being inside a green tank of oxygen so at auctions flammable. It's an accelerate. So you need something to be that initial Sort of trigger anyway but the new hospital setting. You're wearing very special clothing. You can't bring anything in there. It's a it's a very regular regularized area because of if there were a spark in that chamber that could happen for sure okay. So that's kind of trickle down from the bigger hospital setting exact okay. Any other any of the risks that the folks should be aware of when using one of these things or contraindications. I mean the main contra indication especially when we're talking soft chamber stuff is is just new thorax right if you have if you have an air space that you which is a pop long basically if you have an airspace that you cannot equal is you can't go to pressure you just can't You'll never be able to get that particular airspace properly equalized with the environment. You know so you might see over time to ban if you ever have like a little allergy or congestion or something. You're GONNA have a hard time clearing your ears. You know the whole thing is about you know can you? Can you equalize with your new environment in your airspaces which is basically your lungs for the most part your lungs in your ears? We have other airspaces too but they. They tend to equalize pretty easily. So if you have a lot of your pain back like it's just not worth it you know. Go Go back tomorrow or you know. Go Out and do a sinus rents and try it again. If you want. But as long as you're equalizing and you don't have any other issues. There's really very few absolute contraindications Numa Thorax would be but there are some relative like clearing your ears. There's certain chemo drugs. That actually Their mechanism works on superoxide dismutase primarily so that those are contraindicated for especially for high pressure but generally speaking the equivalent. Just you know the of the pressure that you're in is about a nine somewhere between nine and ten feet underwater. So you know. That's that's the amount of pressure so as long as you feel comfortable like. Hey I can get to ten feet of water. I can go like the deep end of that problem. You're going to be okay. So so basically the the main things we'd be looking at would be for someone who's injured oxygen delivery to tissue to speed return to pre injury activity levels and for people looking at it from the performance standpoint. Obviously you get the increase in. Atp Synthesis from the hyper oxygenation and removal of the metabolic byproducts. That build up within tissue. But then you could also potentially get like the the motto conroe and Stem Cell and blood vessel proliferation response and then if folks were sick if we're talking about auto immunity like ms or thrones or inflammatory arthritis. You're looking at the anti inflammatory component. If it's a case of the nerves like your who has at your do tell you what your brother who had me with the initial neuropathy and step my Stepdad. So your Stepdad. Yeah so so with the nerves. It's actually allowing for repair of damaged. Nerves in the case of of neurological conditions. Such as such as that or even something like Parkinson's or concussion or and in the case of again healing recovery got the stem cells post surgical recovery things like that. And then finally what you brought up earlier the immune system components LIME CBO C diff etcetera basically. You're giving a robes. The necessary oxygen for life while allowing for killing off of off of pathogens I think those are those are those are the main benefits that I think I came across in your book that I've I've discovered thus far that I did I sum it up pretty well. I think that's a great summary. The last one other thing I would add to that is on the performance side because we often look physical performance but we don't often talk about the mental performance and show. They're studying now out of Israel especially as shy of Friday has done a lot of research on hyper The the mental. Or you know the sort of a brain performance effect of highbrow oxygenation. So we know that the brain uses up about twenty percent of the oxygen so the question becomes is that twenty percent the total amount that the brain requires to function the way that we wanted to or is that the total amount the body allows the brain to have because the body needs so much also on any given in a minute for performance. And so what they do now is. They're they're studying dual tasking so complex motor like so complex movement patterns with complex mental acuity tests combination watching that with increase oxygenation. These folks are able to perform more complex Motor and more complex Mental s interesting. Oh consistent across the board. Yeah Yeah I haven't I haven't mess around too much with with using nutro picks or something like that prior to just just because honestly I don't want to spark up my brain prior to sleep but right optimism around that a little bit now now. What about exercise with oxygen therapy? I was actually doing that this morning I did. I didn't exercise oxygen therapy session on the vast per where I breathe pure oxygen and kind of cycle between that and high pox. Yeah using in this case one of those live. Oh two machines What would be the difference because they will make claims? That this thing will simulate the doing exercise with oxygen. Therapy would simulate a hyperbaric and does remove the need for crawling inside of a chamber. And I'm curious what your thoughts are on on the whole hyperbaric versus the Iwate or the exercise with oxygen therapy scenario. Yes so I get that question a lot and I hybrid back obviously but I love oxygen modalities so I like watt ozone. I'm not a purist. When it comes to oxygen saying hyperbaric the only one that works. It's just you know again different tools for different goals and different purposes. So I I think the biggest difference just for people to understand is that with. E Watt. What you're doing is you're exercising. As you exercise you're using up more oxygen and then instead of breathing twenty one percent oxygen the way we all right. Now you're breathing. Maybe Ninety five ninety eight percent oxygen. So you're basically you're increasing the demand through exercise utilizing much higher degree of oxygen and you're increasing supply so as you increase demand and supply. You'RE GONNA turn over a lot more oxygen in that process than you would if you were just breathing normal ambient air while you're exercising so from an oxygen delivery standpoint. I think it's great. The biggest difference is that you're still relying completely on red blood cells to do that work. So in order for this to work you have to deplete your red blood cells and having cycled through and with hyperbaric first of all passive so depending on the issues right. People can't do the mobility that they need to get me watt to be performing optimally so hyperbaric is obviously it's a passive therapy or laying there breathing but more more than that. It's also bypassing the red blood cells and increasing your oxygen just by by pure fusion. Okay okay that makes sense. And plus I guess for people who can't exercise obviously or or who are repairing and injury D- That might be a little more difficult to pull off Okay cool to Thomas Stuff here in in your book really. Dell's even more deeply into the science. It's really good manual for those. You want to wrap your heads around this even more. The book is called Oxygen under pressure. And you can get on Amazon and then Also I know the folks at HBO NOT USA Jason's Company. They worked out some discounts and some ways for you to get your hands on hyperbaric soft-shell chamber for your home that might allow you to to overcome any of the price.
"blood vessels" Discussed on 94WIP Sports Radio
"The production of blood vessels that shouldn't be there, and that will destroy vision because these blood vessels tend to be very fragile and they leak causing hemorrhages in the eye. So what causes the diabetic retinopathy? We really don't know my own view is that it it it relates to oxygen. Availability in the eye. And why I say that is is the following. And that is that the retina is a huge consumer of oxygen paticularly the photo receptors. So and interestingly enough, they consume more oxygen in the dark than they do in the light. And why we think then that it's related to the high metabolism of the retina and why and diabetes when you have hike. Glucose, you have this very high metabolic demand by the cells. We don't know why that is. But if you what we do know, for example, in this is an interesting story, if you have retinitis pigmentosa, which I talked about a few minutes ago in which the rods are I badly damaged and the Roger found mainly in the periphery of the eye. Not in the center, which mediates are higher res- highest resolution as the when the rods die, it reduces. Of course, the metabolic demand of the I and these people even though they have severe diabetes don't develop diabetic retinopathy. So that was the first hint that indeed the it's the need for oxygen in the because of its high metabolic demand that that related to diabetic retinopathy, and indeed a treatment was developed a number of years ago that still used in which what you do is take a laser and you damage. A good deal of the retina outside of the central area. So you damage the peripheral retina, and why do you do that to treat diabetic retinopathy to reduce the metabolic and of the retina and that works reasonably well. But of course, today what we what we try to make sure that anyone who had diabetes. We've made is saying pain on strict glucose control and that helps a lot and again with laser therapy. And then the glucose control one can help a lot of diabetic retinopathy. So we don't really have a way to completely cure it. But we have some ways to modify it moderate it and allow people to maintain vision for a good period of time. Does he ever reverse though, if you had diabetes? But at some point. Yeah. I mean do have treatments now to reduce the re the growth of abnormal blood vessels. There's a compound called dead. Jeff. That induces in retinal disease. The formation of abnormal blood, vessels, and blood vessels that shouldn't be there. And now we have a number of ways of. Reducing that molecule that enhances the blood vessel formation anti Geoff treatments, and that's us now and diabetic retinopathy and can be very helpful. It's also used in age related macular degeneration in age related macular degeneration and comes in two forms. One is what is called the dry form in which you have lesions in the central retina that affect particularly your high resolution vision and your color vision to a considerable extent. The dry form, though is relatively benign it takes a long time, usually not always. But usually for vision to be severely compromised on the other hand about fifteen percent of the cases of dry AMD, go on to a more severe form of AMD, cold, wet AMD. And what is meant by that the wet AM the situation is that that has blood vessel growth in the central area of the retina. And again, what can happen is those new vessels tend to be fragile they leak, and you have hemorrhage, and if you have hemorrhage in the center of the eye, then you'll lose all high resolution vision, you can't read you can't drive. You can't watch television. So the way that's treated today. Again is applying these anti Vegf, Jeff. Compounds to the guy, and and and that really doesn't cure the disease, but it slows down norm Asli the progression of the degeneration in for many people. They can they the anti Geoff treatment has been a real miracle for them. Again, you're not curing the disease. And this is what we need to get at and that is what's causing age related macular degeneration, a number of us have ideas, and we're exploring what might be done to actually stopped the disease the prove their prevented to cure it. But we're not there yet the anti Jeff treatment, though, slows way down and for many people even stabilizes their vision for a good period of time. If if not permanently. Okay. We're running out of time. Doctor. So let me do a little housekeeping thing here. Do you have a website? I don't well. You would contact me by looking on my name at Harvard University. I don't have a separate website. But but but if you look at the Harvard University faculty faculty of arts and sciences department of molecular and cellular biology, then you would come up on my website. That's correct. And we can hopefully find your book both on you can find it on Amazon. It was published by the MIT press. So I it should be readily available again, it's vision how it works and what can go wrong small book. It's only a hundred and seventy pages hopefully, accessible to anybody interested in I disease or how we see because we've spent most of the time today talking about diseases of the eye, but understanding how we see all the way up to visual perception is included in the book. And I think it's a fascinating story. Absolutely. And certainly we can hopefully find your book at Barnes and noble as well. Absolutely, okay. Now. One one final final question. Sure, you say it's important to have a routine eye exam. What? Well because a lot of situations arise that you're not even aware of. So for example. Where the optic nerve. There's acts on which I talked about very early on exit the eye and carry the visual message from the eye to the rest of the brain. There are no photoreceptors there. There's a blind spot there. But we don't notice it. We feel it in that's done in the cortex in the brain in the brain proper rather than the I now why I mentioned it is that block Homa. When it starts starts in the periphery of the retina, and you can lose a substantial amount of vision and part of the retina, and you don't even notice it. So sometimes glaucoma is talked about as that thief in the night by that it means that you don't realize that you're losing vision. So just for glaucoma is useful.
